    Abstract : Design practices are to a large degree conceptually and methodologically based in ways of designing rooted in the 20th century. Some of the challenges that arise in contemporary design stem from an unawareness of design’s historicity, and the discrepancies between what design methods and concepts once were made to handle, and what we presently try to apply them to.

  2. 2. Designing tools forconviviality : A design led exploration of ParticipatoryActivity Mapping

    Author : Fredrik Sandberg; Sara Ilstedt; Bo Westerlund; Stefan Holmlid; KTH; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Convivial tool; design tools; service design; participatory design; space in between; heterogeneous; participatory activity mapping; absent; othering;

    Abstract : This thesis is a report of research work that contributes to the understandingof so-called convivial tools. It does this by describing how small enterprisesuse Participatory Activity Mapping as an approach to changing, as well ascaring about, people and the things that hold their work situations together.

  4. 4. Platform Design : Creating Meaningful Toolboxes When People Meet

    Author : David Joaquin Cuartielles Ruiz; Teemu Leinonen; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; NATURVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; Platform Design; Interaction Design;

    Abstract : Platform Design is a study of different viewpoints on the creation of digital systems, and how they converge in platforms designed, built, and managed by communities. As sociotechnical constructs in which features emerge through the interaction of different stakeholders, platforms are understood as both means and outcomes—the ‘things’ or boundary objects in a design process—generating the spaces where communities of practice can form.

  5. 5. Simple haptics : Sketching perspectives for the design of haptic interactions

    Author : Camille Moussette; Daniel Fällman; Bill Buxton; William Verplank; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; interaction design; haptics; haptic interactions; sketching; sketching in hardware; prototypes; prototyping; industrial design; human computer interaction; design research; research through desgin;

    Abstract : Historically, haptics—all different aspects of the sense of touch and its study—has developed around very technical and scientific inquiries. Despite considerable haptic research advances and the obviousness of haptics in everyday life, this modality remains mostly foreign and unfamiliar to designers. READ MORE
